TUSCANY RETREAT : AUGUST 28TH – SEPTEMBER 3RD, 2016

9 August 2016

A WRITING RETREAT FOR THE SENSES

AUGUST 28TH – SEPTEMBER 3RD, 2016

If inspiration, landscape, mouthfuls of words and food and wine are what you’re looking for, 

If getting away, delving deep, writing, being heard, writing some more and attentive feedback are what you’re looking for,

If gentle morning yoga, invigorating hikes, days of sun and the occasional afternoon rain are what you’re looking for,

If unexpected friendships, belly busting laughter and being moved to tears are what you’re looking for, 

If sudden ahahs about who you are as a creative soul is what you’re looking for.

Then come join us.

Spend seven days and six nights of writing and nurturing your creative self in a farmhouse nestled in the Chianti region of Italy. Through daily morning yoga, workshops, writing prompts and using all that the countryside has to offer, this retreat is guaranteed to transform your writing and your connection to your senses.

To hear what past participants have said about us and our retreats, visit our Praise page.

The cost in a shared room is $2150 and includes all meals (and wine!), workshop fees, private transportation between the farmhouse and Florence.  Limited single rooms available at a supplemental cost.  A non-refundable deposit of $250 is necessary to secure your spot.

A Writing Retreat Like No Other

13 May 2016

Two spots remain for Elephant Rock’s Fourth Annual Summer Solstice Retreat, June 12-17, 2016! This retreat is truly like no other. You will not workshop. You will not critique. You will not, for just one week, tear the work down. Instead, you will tap into your own fierce, original voice using some of the most innovative, unconventional writing exercises and techniques you will ever encounter. You will fall into open mode, allowing yourself to immerse in the beauty of language, the metaphor in all of life, and the absolute necessity of humor and play as a portal to the profound. All of this creative energy will be deepened by yoga, meditation, chanting, and an intensely supportive and inspiring community of fellow writers. Held on a beautiful secluded island at historic Stout’s Lodge at the height of summer, our retreat is nestled in the trees amid lapping waves and birdsong. Be prepared to surprise yourself, and to laugh, a lot. And be ready to leave with seeds for many projects to come. As one writer said last year, “I am still searching for words … because what happened at Stout’s was so huge.” That’s the heart of the Elephant Rock Summer Solstice Retreat. All levels and genres welcome. Tuition includes 5 nights’ lodging and all vegetarian meals, daily writing, yoga, & meditation, kayaks and outdoor activities, evening readings, bonfires, and music, Solstice Eve celebration, and more. Don’t wait. This retreat is nearly full and always sells out.
